Canada’s Cogeco Cable has reportedly decided to sell its Portuguese cable TV and broadband/telephone operation, Cabovisao.

The cable operator, according to the Lusa news agency has invited “expressions of interest” from other international operators and private equity investors. Lusa says some conversations have already started and are well advanced.
Cogeco has controlled the business since 2006, although Cabovisao has been in operation since 1995.
